svn_load_dirs is designed to load a number of complete releases of a
project. It sounds like what you have are not complete releases, but
only partials.

I've never looked into the svn_load_dirs source code so I don't know
how difficult it would be to modify it.

I don't know how complex your project structure is, but is it
feasible to convert your directories into full releases before
running svn_load_dirs? Following your example above, is it possible
to copy a, b and e from dir1 into dir2 and dir3 before importing dir2
and dir3?
